Young Lions Sometimes go Hungry
Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people:
for all the earth is mine.
1 Corinthians 15:2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly
to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you.
you noticed the promises of God are conditional? He does not just make
promises without expecting something from us. He promises to take care
of us, if we follow His Word. Let me give you an example.
“O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that
fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that
seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. Ps 34:9-10
If we fear or reverence the Lord, we will not want or be in need. God
promises to take care of us. In fact, the Psalmist gives us the example
there are times when even the mighty lion will have to do without and
be hungry. However, those that seek God and fear or reverence Him will
never want for anything good. Therefore, if I am keeping my priorities
right and seeking first those things important to God, God is going
to watch over me. He will take care of those things that are important
to me. Don Doran
It’s just a thought!
